Nutrition: FDA pushes back deadline to update nutrition labels
The FDA is delaying big changes to nutrition labels. Back in 2016, the FDA under the Obama administration set new rules that require food manufacturers to list added sugars, along with more visible calorie counts and clearer serving sizes. Those guidelines were set to go into effect in July. Now, the FDA is extending the deadline to January 2020 to give food manufacturers more time to comply, with companies that bring in less than $10 million in annual sales getting until 2021. Meanwhile, after years of delays, a new FDA policy is going into effect on Monday that requires restaurants with 20 more or more locations to display calorie counts.
